Hill Cafe armed robbery late Thursday night/early Friday morning

From Church Hill Crime Watch:

Richmond Police detectives need the public’s help to identify the suspects an armed robbery of the Hill Café and its patrons.

At approximately 12:30 a.m., officers responded to the 2800 block of E. Broad St. for a robbery that had just happened. Once on scene, the victims told police two male suspects walked into the business armed and demanded money property. Soon after, the suspects fled the business. The suspects were last seen running towards Marshall St., wearing dark hoodies and pants. Personal property was found at N. 21st St and E. Clay, so direction of travel appears to be westward and north.

IF YOU HAVE A SECURITY SYSTEM THAT RECORDS YOUR HOUSE AND/OR THE STREET, COULD YOU PLEASE REVIEW IMAGES FROM APPROX. 12:25 TO 12:40 AM? THE POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR 2 BLACK MALES IN DARK CLOTHING, ON FOOT, OR ENTERING OR RIDING IN AN ESCAPE VEHICLE (NO DESCRIPTION AVAILABLE).

Anyone with information about this armed robbery is asked to call First Precinct Detective Partain (804) 646-1290 or contact Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000 or at www.7801000.com. The P3 Tips Crime Stoppers app for smartphones may also be used. All Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.

Please help if you can. And ALWAYS BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS!

Take care now that the nights are getting longer,

Amanda Walker Church Hill Crime Watch

What is so bad about this is that the patrons were also robbed. I am sure some people will second guess visiting after that wondering if it will happen again. Or any restaurant.

I don’t know if it’s relevant, but about an hour or so prior to the robbery, I called 911 and reported two males beating up another male in the alleyway connecting 35th and 36th Streets. I wasn’t in a position to confidently describe any details beyond the number of people, their gender and general age group (young adult.) I mention this just in case any residents who live in the vicinity have security cams trained on the area.

I would have thought this would have grabbed more media attention and/or that the police would have released security footage by now? Odd

My husband was robbed last night, at gunpoint, near our home at N 26th and E Grace Streets while returning from a School Board meeting at Bellvue ES. Thankfully, he was not harmed but this is clearly another very frightening occurrence in our neighborhood. The police felt that his description of the criminal possibly matched one of the men involved in The Hill Cafe robbery a few weeks ago. Please be careful out there on our streets since these despicable criminals seem to be very active lately. Thank you City of Richmond Police Department for your prompt response.
